Bend's real estate market continues to provide opportunities for buyers and sellers but it takes an expert to help you navigate through the process. Before starting your search or listing your property, I recommend interviewing a few brokers before deciding who to partner with. A broker's background, knowledge of the community, area of expertise, business philosophy and personality - differ from company to company and broker to broker, so make sure you find a good fit before jumping in.
I was raised in the Portland area before heading north to attend college at Pacific Lutheran University (PLU). After obtaining my degree in Business Administration, I lived in Seattle for a short time then talked my college friend into relocating to Bend in 1999. My only regret is I didn't move here earlier! When I arrived in Bend, I worked for a professional recruiting firm for five years. It was a great opportunity but I ultimately knew I wanted to have my own business.
The Hasson Company opened their Bend doors in 2005 and I was one of the initial brokers in the office. I strongly believe a real estate broker can only be as successful as the brokerage behind them and feel very fortunate to be a part of the Hasson Company.
If you have any additional questions about the Central Oregon market, our company, or my background please feel free to contact me. I'd be happy to provide you with a list of past clients I have worked with if you'd like as well. Thank you.
